The Landscape Architecture Department, in conjunction with the Landscape Architecture Department Advisory Council (LADAC) and participating professional partners, is launching its fourth annual Professional Shadowship program for LA majors. The program is designed to give students the opportunity to "shadow" senior professionals in a design firm work environment. Students will gain exposure to firm dynamics and network with design professionals in the realm of landscape architecture.

The shadowship will typically last between one work day to one work week (as determined by each individual firm) and may include office tasks including site visits, presentations, office meetings, design/production tasks, etc. In some cases, a shadowship may include multiple firm visits.

Dates of the shadowships are TBA as determined by the firm once student assignments are made.

For 2016, shadowship opportunities were available in the following metropolitan areas:

Central Valley

Sacramento

San Diego

Orange County/Los Angeles

San Luis Obispo

Lake Tahoe

San Francisco

Seattle

The program is recommended for prospective, first, and second year students. Registration for the program is ongoing. To participate, or for further information, please contact Natalie Montoya at nrmontoya@calpoly.edu. 

* Note that shadowships are unpaid opportunities; participating firms are not responsible for student housing during the shadowship; the professional shadowship program does not satisfy the LA 371 internship requirement.
